Whilst the building itself is an architectural masterpiece, step inside its doors and you’ll find a treasure trove of manuscripts and magnificent works of art awaiting you!
Dedicated to the Nativity of Our Lady, the church was built in 1680, as a monument to the Great Siege.
After becoming a Basilica in 1921, and a sanctuary of the Virgin Mary, it was bombed during World War ll and rebuilt in 1957.
Not just a church, but an art collection too, it is home to several splendid busts, paintings, and statues. Its main attraction is the exquisite wooden Madonna, flanked by four delightful silver angels.
With a room dedicated to its manuscripts, there’s no end to the delights that this magnificent Basilica holds. And if the artwork isn’t enough, it also has a whopping seven bells! Church-lover or not, this breathtaking Basilica is well worth exploring!
